Playa de La Concha Beach, Fuerteventura. A charming fishing village and a paradisiacal beach
The charming village of El Cotillo
This delightful fishing village looks like something out of a postcard. Upon arrival you notice you only encounter white houses with blue accents.
If you stroll around you will come across many restaurants overlooking the ocean, and, depending on the hour, you might also see the catch of the day being prepared right by the old port.

Playa de la Concha beach and the other beaches you will find in el Cotillo,
If you head to the south of the village, wild beaches await. Typically, long beaches with golden sands. They are famous for their waves, and, consequently, if you visit it is likely that you will find many surfers.
To the north of El Cotillo, on the way to the lighthouse, you will find a succession of three different beaches with white sand and very calm turquoise waters. La Playa de la Concha beach is one of them.
Playa de la Concha beach, Fuerteventura
While the beach is walking distance from the village it is still far enough to make you feel part of nature.
It is what people from the island call a “lagoon beach” because the waters are not very deep as the beach forms a bay. This makes it very family friendly and a good option if it is windy.
The sand is white and the water is as clear as it gets, making it one of the loveliest beaches in Fuerteventura. The location of the area also makes it ideal to enjoy the sunset.
There are toilets and showers available, and a bar – however it was closed when we visited in early January 2022.
